CharMeck Adopt-a-Stream Clean

Apr 30, 2019

The #BeEPIC Team was at it again. And we are happy to report a much improved stretch of Little Sugar Creek waterway! Despite having pulled about a full bag and a half of debris from the water and its surrounding banks, it was the least amount that we’ve seen since we started volunteering over a year ago. The primary culprits, as we’ve seen in the past, consist primarily of disposable plastic grocery store bags, styrofoam cups and take-out containers, aluminum cans, bottles, and foil snack bags. Some of the more unique items today were tattered clothes, a decomposed backpack, a softball, and a basketball. But there was some beauty among the discarded, as we saw flowers blooming, bees buzzing, and a few geese going about their day. Not to mention the sun was blazing and it was HOT! All worth it as we recognized the value of our efforts in seeing our little strip look pretty clean and alive with wildlife. If you’d like to consider volunteering with us please let us know.
